ONCE UPON A TIME IN MASSACHUSETTS is an Italian Pilsner brewed in collaboration with our friends at @goodwordbrewing. We had the pleasure of ripping it up down in Georgia at their Little Beer Fest last year and since we are doing it again in a couple weeks we had to brew up something special.
We left Good Word last year dreaming of lagers. Their Italian Pils was one of our favorites of the weekend, and when we talked with Todd about brewing one up here we were excited at the prospect. The care and attention Todd and his team give to their beers shows in every single pour and their hospitality is unmatched. We could yap all day about how great they are but let’s talk about this beer. We employed a decoction mash consisting of Eraclea pils, hopped with Saaz and dry hopped with Grungiest. Fermented cold, spunded and naturally carbed. Crisp, clean, some earthy notes, some stonefruit notes. We’re stoked on it, spread the Good Word and enjoy this one outdoors with some good friends.
